LIving in Adelaide, I am surrounded by what you describe, both houses next door, the people over the back fence, the next street across and the four after it. Go to the supermarket and being greeted by: 'Go, Crows!' drives you mad. I wear my Demons cap everywhere, now.

Let me tell you, there is a wall of silence from those who one might regard as 'normal people', well-mannered people and football enthusiasts who normally meet and greet in bucket-loads of conviviality.  No more - particularly this week with the Crows match approaching. 

So, Dees and Dees fans, hellp me give 'em hellfire! 

Could not agree more.

Visit Adelaide a lot for business. Crows supporters are "special." The closest we come to them in Victoria is probably the modern Hawthorn supporter.

They really expect to win the flag most years.

Port supporters may be rabid but at least they are philosophical (think Collingwood).

Have not spent much time in Perth but I wonder if Eagles supporters are similar to those who support the Crows.

Go Dees !!

The Crows are set to welcome back A grader Crouch, for the indigenous round game in the Alice.

Also Wayne Milera (hamstring) and defender Luke Brown are expected to be available.

 

Is the D's bubble ready to burst, after a run of 4 on the trot ?

Viney still well underdone, and we haven't beaten anyone of note, yet.   Will the D's be ahead of themselves this week, after a handful of wins. 

 

This game on the big stage, will be our biggest test of the Year.

Are we ready, or are we pretending, again?

Perhaps you should go away and watch 186. We will absolutely dominate the Crow Eaters on Sunday and win by 30-40 points.

Certainly we are getting Adelaide at about the best time. They have a stack of A-graders missing. 

But even so, the side they’ll field will be the best we’ve faced since Richmond. 

IMO, we should win this game.

Never thought I would see "philosophical" and "Collingwood" used in the same sentence!

Win a few games and everyone thinks our players are cocky and are ahead of themselves, don't dare to show any happiness. Carlton are cocky I think they turned up thinking they were just going to win.

How about this, dpositive: To the philosophical and wizened AFL enthusiast, Collingwood Football Club are trash.

I'm sure the players have been building themselves up for this match, and they have been improving every week since the loss to Richmond so we really are hitting Adelaide at the best time with their injuries and our form.

The most exciting thing for me is watching our forward line start to gel; TMac, Hogan, and Melksham in particular. If we can get Jeffy in there in good form that is a very serious forward line.

Could be a great victory, for sure. Are we all sitting, at present, on the edge of the seat with nervous tremors? Sure does fully occupy the mind and the full, daily routine, often at the most inappropriate moments. Hate to harp, but I feel obliged to mention it: I would really like to see Pedo snuck into the fwd line from the bench across the game; I would like to see Spargo rested and Garlett come into the fwd pocket. I thought that the Clarrie fakes for a Brayshaw centre clearance and vice-versa were absolutely fantastic - and kept opponents guessing where to intercept on Gawn's taps at the centre bounces.

The faux-toughness at the start of the game from Carlton was pretty pathetic, they clearly came out thinking they were going to get inside our players heads. I’m glad we put our heads down and just concentrated on the game.

Evidence for the prosecution:

Adelaide had a really tough contested slog in the wet last week, as evidenced by the extraordinary number of contests.  We had a bit of a waltz around a few witches hats. 

adelaide give it, but wilt when put under sustained pressure.

they have some serious names out injured

they are arrogant overconfident tossers 

their focus is on Lever.

i think they will ruck to Max.  Jacobs has already conceded.

so, they are no pushovers, but we are at least one goal better per quarter.  Dees by 24, with and upside blowout over 40 on the cards.

My wish for this game is, if Lever gets manhandled, for his MFC team mates to come barrelling in and ante up. Jones to come in with some rolled gold champagne jumper punching. Maybe a cheeky nipple tweak for good measure.

If we lose it will be a justified questioning of our bona fides

 

My view, for what little it's worth, is we have not proven ourselves yet.

A strong showing against Radelaide will be a step in right direction.

A loss means need to smash pies and dogs.

And to dispel any ambiguity I mean proving to the players not the meeja.

Need to smash pies and dogs regardless of this result.

Carlton were cocky (a) because they are Carlton and (b) they were coming off one on the trot

Wasn't it DV8 who said we all need to be more positive and less negative?

Maybe the borderline veil of negativity/nervousness is a self protection measure. I've already conceded we'll lose so I can be all frowny face "I KNEW IT" (grumble grumble) rather than actually disappointed.

 

(Note to DV8, post made in jest do not take seriously)

It's something we haven't display in years, ET - maturity.

It’s been a bit quiet on the training front in the last couple of weeks. A training report from anyone attending this morning will be greatly appreciated before heading to the Alice.

If we lose this game the media will be so quick in pulling out the branding iron and stamping us as downhill skiers, flat track bullies etc.

I don’t want that to happen.

I think this will be another percentage boosting game for us.

Dee’s by 59 points.

I don't care what the jerks in the media say . If we win we are 4 points closer to being in the finals. If we lose we are 4 points further away.

Pulled up sore, off the track early and going for a scan.  

No chance he plays.

Do we know what the scan is of?  Not his foot again, is it?

So Pedo for TMAC?
